Hey SGADS Readers-
It is with a very heavy heart that I tell you that one of Athena's best friends went to the Rainbow Bridge last night. Kiera, the brilliant, agile, angst-y German shepherd from my book was Athena's good, good friend. She passed peacefully in Liz's arms surrounded by her loved ones. Kashka, my kitty from the book and Kiera's boyfriend, will be so happy to see a familiar face. Let's all wish Liz the best. RIP, Kiera.
Here's Kiera and Athena from younger days--typical of their personalities, Athena looks like she's not thinking of anything much while Kiera is trying to puzzle out the latest permutation of the time-space continuum.
